Kerry Katona once appeared on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and was forced to eat eyeballs and bugs while on the show.
But according to the star, that’s not the worst thing she’s ever tasted.
Actually, she’s explained her ex-husband Brian McFadden is the ‘worst thing she’s ever put in her mouth’. Yep, we’re just as shocked as you are.
Taking to the Back Then When podcast with Keith Lemon and Lucie Cave, the 42-year-old media personality talked about her appearance on the reality show in 2004, as well as her newly flourishing career as an adult content creator.
Keith asked the former Atomic Kitten singer what the first thing on her bucket list was once she left the jungle.
He said: “So, you come out of the jungle, and you stink of a**. What’s the first thing you do when you get out of there?”
To this, Kerry admitted that she ‘had a Big Mac’ - as is completely understandable after primarily eating just rice and beans for a significant period of time - while Keith then asked: “And what was going through your mind?”
Kerry then admitted: “For me, when it was three of us in the final on the last day, the night before I just kept thinking ‘I'm going home tomorrow, so I don’t care’.
“I got nicknamed the Warrington Whinger because I cried a lot, I just wanted to go home and go back to my mansion.”
It would be a crime if Keith missed the chance at asking Kerry a loaded question - and he certainly didn’t disappoint.
He said: “You probably put a lot of awful things in your mouth, but what's the worst thing you put in your mouth in the jungle?”
Seeing the humour in his innuendo-filled question, Kerry laughed along as she replied: “I was going to say Brian McFadden.”
Thinking back on the year in which she appeared on the show, Kerry said: “2004 was the most amazing year and also the worst year.
“I got out of the jungle and my husband number one was there,” she said of Westlife singer Brian, whom she was married to between 2002 and 2004 and shares two children with: Molly, 21, and Lilly-Sue, 19.
She continued: “Honest to God, Keith, I’ve got to Google it half of the time. I say to the kids ‘who do you belong to?’”
Kerry went on to marry Mark Croft in 2007 before they divorced in 2011. They share children Heidi, 15, and Maxwell, 14.
The singer then married former rugby league player George Kay in 2014, but divorced in 2017 after George allegedly assaulted his wife. He was arrested, but the charges were later dropped.
George died of a drug overdose in July 2019. He and Katona shared daughter Dylan-Jorge, 8, together.
Kerry got engaged to her current other half Ryan Mahoney in August 2020, and she has started the embryo freezing process with him last month.
